My husband loves bar-b-q having been raised in Eastern NC. Checked trip advisor and saw this one ranked at the top so we gave it a try. It is a hole in the wall kind of place, but as is so often the case, it is were the good stuff is. My husband and son got the mixed plates, I... More

We arrived late in Tuscaloosa and googled BBQ. This was not too far from our hotel and was still opened. It was not your usual chain eatery. There were many locals eating there, which was a good sign. We ordered the rib dinner. It was only $7!. We had 3 large ribs and 2 sides. My husband was disappointed that... More

Archibald and Woodrow's... When I think of places that I would rather eat in Tuscaloosa, there are seldom few. What makes Archibald's so excellent is not only the AMAZING food (the wings are to die for) but the atmosphere. If you are looking for something fancy - do not eat here. At Archibald and Woodrow's, you eat off of styrofoam... More

The ribs were perfection in every way. The proprietors were very friendly. They have reached the height of their craft. I suspect this place is 'Bama's secret to getting all the best football recruits.

Awesome BBQ. The way BBQ should be. We ordered the large combo ribs and pulled pork with 2 sides. Beans and collards were great. Great prices and the staff was attentive and great at what they do. This is the best in Alabama!

This is one of the most authentic old world BBQ gems that hasn't changed in decades. Smoke infused ribs, pulled pork & catfish with a great vinegar based sauce. The sides are the best. Don't miss the baked beans.

If you are looking for true, no frills, exceptional BBQ --- this is your place. The sauce is incredible and the portions are huge. You won't leave here hungry. The price was very reasonable and the service was very good. We'll definitely be going back!
